Dolly’s Dixie Stampede in Branson, MO is celebrating a milestone

In 2014, the popular and unique dinner show attraction celebrates its 20th season. Its ability to stand out and have a broad, generational appeal may be what keeps guests coming back for more.

“Dixie Stampede really is a product that is designed to make all of those individuals happy. Creating a product that crosses generational lines is key to our past and future successes,”

says the attraction’s marketing director John Richardson. Dixie Stampede features 32 magnificent horses, dozens of cast members and seating for 1,000 people in a 35,000 square foot arena.

For the 20th brighter, bolder Roman Ride of Fire, new and returning guests have something to look forward to.

“It’s our obligation, effort and requirement to do everything at the highest level possible and keep on top of our game with everything about our operation, because Dolly Parton does not own businesses that aren’t the best at what they do,”

says Richardson. As always, guests will enjoy Dixie Stampede’s signature meal—Original Creamy Vegetable Soup, a cheddar biscuit, a whole rotisserie chicken, a slice of hickory-smoked pork loin, corn on the cob, half a roasted potato and a specialty dessert.

Dixie Stampede sponsors Imagination Library in Branson, MO, where more than 2,100 children are part of the book gifting program

Since becoming a sponsor of Dolly’s Imagination Library, Dixie Stampede, in Branson, MO, has seen more than 2,100 children enroll in the program. Dixie Stampede brought the program to Stone and Taney Counties in Missouri in 2000. As of 2013, there were 2,151 children enrolled in the program and more than 27,000 books had been provided to children in those communities.

Imagination Library is a free book gifting program for all pre-school age children in participating communities, including newborns, whose parents register for the program. Each child receives a free, age-appropriate book each month by mail until the age of five. These high-quality books arrive addressed to the child. A child will receive a complete 60-book library if they are enrolled from birth to age five.

Dolly Parton launched her Imagination Library in 1995 in her home county in East Tennessee. She wanted to foster a love of reading among children and get them excited about books and reading. In 2000, the program expanded and became available for replication to any community willing to partner with the efforts. There are currently 36 programs in the state of Missouri.
